Our Book of the Month for January 2024 is Rosalind Nashashibi’s Proximity Machine. Get it with 30% off until 31 January.
Proximity Machine presents a series of static ‘films’ made from found and re-photographed images collated from a variety of sources. Edited into associative groupings, the newly formed series of short sequences construct fragments of narratives that allude to filmic language, writing, or chains of thought. Through the act of editing, each successive image affects the next, creating a montage in which unexpected projections, hidden shapes, and mythologies materialise.
Proximity Machine includes an essay by Will Bradley, and was published as part of Singular Sociology, a project curated for Book Works by Nav Haq.
